Does Windows 7 have a function to copy CDs?

I know I can rip data CDs by just copying their contents to a folder, and audio CDs using the Media Player.

I know I can write data CDs directly through Windows Explorer, and audio CDs through the media player.

Is there any built-in way to copy a CD in Windows 7? If so, how?

No, Windows 7 cannot, on its own, copy a disc.

Check out this post for a bunch of suggestions. I've had good luck personally with ImgBurn which is free and powerful.

ImgBurn has the disadvantage that it doesn't have a 1-step copy. It requires you to rip and then burn in two steps, each of which require you to know appropriate formats. –  Nathan Fellman Oct 3 '11 at 22:10
